Prompto is having a nightmare - when i was drawing it I kind of felt like Prom had been shifted around from his usual sleeping position, in that this is a regular occurance but no ones actually noticed before
Because at first Ignis thinks he’s just being restless and is like ‘ok this is why Noct mentioned waking up sometimes’
but then Noct was only waking when Prom jerked awake himself and then he would pretend to have kicked him or something
So this night Ignis, casually mentioned to Prompto that he wanted to be near Noctis that night considering he’d used so much magic so he was a little concerned. Prom was all 'yes yes of course!!’ And Ignis said to Noct to sleep in against the side
You know, just thinking about it now, that tent and sleeping between people is kind of claustrophobic and those little spaces are probably reminiscent of MT pods
So yes, unlike Noctis Ignis wakes as soon as Prompto starts to tremble and he’s ready to tell him off until he realises, wait no, this isnt Prom and his short attention span and because Ignis is clever - if he’s been waking Noct a lot is this a reoccurring thing.
Lets say it is the claustrophia inducing the dreams, they could probably shuffle so Prom is at the wall but Ignis doesnt move much in his sleep and neither does Noct so they switch to Noct between Iggy and Gladdy and then Prom can keep his back to Iggy’s chest so he can stretch his arms out and feel the space
Imagine Ignis loosely laying his arm over him “Is this okay?”
“Tell me if it isn’t. I wont mind, i can face the other way”
“No it’s uh….it’s helping”
And it’s probably that gentle touch that’s doing more than anything but the reshuffle is also helping.
